Summary

The Professional Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) Primary is for graduates who wish to enter the teaching profession at primary school level. This 36-week programme is the Scottish route to qualified teacher status.

This is an intensive programme of study with half of this time spent in placement schools and the other half spent studying on campus.

Through graduate level study of education and professional placements, you will begin your development as a primary school teacher. Your learning follows the chronological sequence of pupil development - the focus is initially on early years, moving to the middle primary and then upper primary years.

We aim to produce successful, reflective teachers, sensitive to the demands of pupils, responsive to changes within the education system and committed to their own continuing professional development.

**Accreditation**

Graduates are qualified to teach and eligible for provisional registration from the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS). Eligible graduates may join the Teacher Induction Scheme, a guaranteed, paid one-year probationary teaching post, or take up a Flexible Route.
